Please take note:


The following is an excerpt straight out of the SDC rulebook, the very same rulebook you agreed to follow when signing up at this site.



3. Flaming (Insulting Other Users)


While debating and discussion is fine, we will not tolerate rudeness ... posts clearly insulting other board members, individually or as a group, directly or indirectly, are not allowed. Being baited into an argument will not be a valid excuse for rude behavior however - you are responsible for your own posts. It's up to you to be the bigger person and ignore any attempt to be prompted to break a rule. This includes, but is not limited to:


* Insulting posts (including the correcting of spelling or grammar or

* Name-calling ("You're an idiot", "You moron")

* Direct insults ("Screw you")

* Offensive orders ("Go kill yourself")

* Insinuations ("Are you stupid or something?") or insults towards family ("Your mom...")

* Quoting/insulting in a signature as a form of ridiculing or inciting.


4. Trolling (Inciting Flames)


Posts intended solely to annoy and/or offend other posters are not allowed. This includes, but is not limited to:


* You must respect the privacy of other members and individuals ("individuals" not limited to members or visitors to this forum or site). Do not use personal names of members without the permission of the person to be named. Do not post questions concerning other members identities in the forums or in their private lifes. This is OFF TOPIC and/or FLAMING!. Failure to comply with this rule will lead to a ban/account deletion and possible a lawsuit by the named individual in some extreme cases.

* Posts containing "Who cares?" or similar derogatory phrases.

* Posting topics designed to create heating discussions with the intent of "watching" the results.

* Provoking other users to respond with flames.

* Provoking fans of a particular team or town.

* Making misleading topic titles

* Asking obviously useless questions

* Posting false information as fact



Violation of this will result in posting privileges being suspended or possibly a permanent ban.


Things have gotten out of hand on the CFB forum. Many posters are abusing the "wide-open" label on this forum. That stops today. No more trolling. No more pointless GIFs and images flooding the topics. If your comment is not immediate relevant to the topic or responding to another members comment, it will be deleted.


This includes any "obsessed" comments regarding Texas, Texas A&m, the Big 12 or the SEC.


Also, name calling. If you disagree with someones post, respond with your own opinion on the matter. Simply calling them stupid is unacceptable. Friendly banter is allowed, and personally encouraged, but everything has it's limitations. Calling someone names like "retarded" etc will not be tolerated, period.


I believe a majority of the regulars on this forum will be more than happy to abide by these standards. If you have a problem or issue you would like to discuss please send me a PM.
